Peter Genza

Born on 6th June 1972, Genza is a graduate of the Margaret Trowell School of Industrial and Fine Art, Makerere University where he majored in Painting and Graphics. After school, he took a 17 year leave of absence from the art scene to pursue other interests. In 2013 he fell in love with a gorgeous artist and three years later, he has returned to active practice. In addition to writing and photography, he paints and draws privately in his home studio. His extensive work with children undergoing treatment for cancer at the Akiba Home of Bless a Child Foundation in Kampala inspired him to develop methodologies in using art as a tool for therapy and psycho-socio support for children undergoing treatment for cancer.
Genza participated in the inaugural edition of the Kampala Art Auction of modern and contemporary art in Kampala 2015. He co-curated “Eroticism and Intimacy: Faces, Places and Paths” at Underground Contemporary Art, March 2015 and will be exhibiting at the Joburg Art Fair 2016 which will take place at the Sandton Convention Center, Johannesburg in September 2016.
